BLANTYRE-(MaraviPost)—Teachers who will be invigilating and supervising the Malawi School Certificate of Education should brace for tough ride at their respective duty stations as funding for their allowances has not been released, Maravi Post can reveal.
According to a circular, in possession of Maravi Post, from Malawi Examination Board (MANEB) the officers should expect their allowances midway the examination period or after the whole exercise.
“We have not yet received funding to enable us pay allowances, therefore, we expect that at commencement of Malawi school certificate of education examination allowances will not be ready.
“Please inform officers that payment will be done as soon as funding is made available,” reads the circular, signed Maneb acting executive director Jack Chalimba.
Last year’s exercise, also, teachers were only paid half of the supposed allowance and had received no official communication on the outstanding balance until they got the remaining some months after the exercise.
MSCE examination will start this coming Wednesday 22nd July, 2016.
